The Sketchbook Project

The Sketchbook Project is at the Painted Bride Art Center in Philadelphia, PA, USA from August 23-25.

The Sketchbook Project is a mobile library of artists’ sketchbooks contributed by thousands of creative people from across the globe. It encourages artists from diverse backgrounds — working artists, full-time parents, busy professionals, students — to share their process with each other and the public.

My Encyclopedia of Grim effort is in this shelf somewhere.

Offshore Breeze - Suspended in blue

Between the sky and water.
Warming westerly supples the spine.
Gently held by rolling swells.
Waiting for the perfect.
Suspended in blue.

I remember when this photo was taken.
A very hot summer Sunday. Hair freshly combed.
As Mom took this photo she said, "Don't get wet."
We were going to my cousins shortly.
I stood there silently, not doing anything wrong.
Mom said a little louder, "You better not get wet."
I was just standing and thinking, geez.
"Go put your shirt on and don't get wet!"
What? huh, all this talk and standing in the sun makes me feel warmer.
Walking in through the back door Mom yells, "I'm warning you!"
